Mixed Sprouts Poha is made of poha, mixed sprouts, peanut oil, onions and spices. A nutritious quick breakfast of Mixed Sprouts Poha taken early in the morning holds you in good stead throughout the day.

Batata poha is a breakfast dish that's really easy to make and is commonly eaten in most houses. To make it healthier, I have substituted potatoes with sprouts in this Mixed Sprouts Poha recipe as sprouted pulses are easier to digest.

Sprouts contain enzymes that aid digestion and are alkaline in nature. On sprouting, the seed becomes a veritable nutrient factory with a greater concentration of vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin K and B-complex. Sprouts are a good source of fibre, good for diabetic and heart friendly.

We often have Mixed Sprouts Poha as a quick evening snack as the kids and rest of the family get to eat this. As poha is in most Indian kitchens and mixed sprouts is easily available, I love making this Quick Mixed Sprouts Poha recipe.
